Are you feeling up to another Wait And Scene playlist? Well, you got it, dude! Here is a list of ten songs that I’ve been listening to lately; I’ve been digging a lot of really chill, often repetitive, and sometimes weird tracks. To quote a guy I met one night at the Doug Fir Lounge, “Most people just don’t understand the next level tunes that you and I listen to.” He was a real gem (read: good-looking idiot) and he liked interesting music. I dedicate this list of “next level” jams to you, brah.
1) ViLLΛGE Edit of Neon Hitch – Gucci Gucci
I’m sure all of you have heard the original rap-version of Gucci Gucci by Kreayshawn. It is terrible and catchy-as-hell, but this version is way more my speed. Neon Hitch is an English singer currently living in London and ViLLΛGE is an electronic producer from Romania; He’s definitely on my very long list of ‘ones to watch‘.
2) Cyril Hahn Remix of Destiny’s Child – Say My Name
3) Thomas Azier – Angelene
Thomas Azier is an electronic music artist, based in Berlin, who gives us this perfect going to bed song… I assume I’m not the only one who falls asleep to epic, electronic soundscapes.
4) MMOTHS feat. Young & Sick – For Her
5) Vondelpark – Dracula
Since I don’t want to wake you from your dream state just yet, I present this layered, dark, and unworldly track by Vondelpark. Dracula is the first single off their new LP titled Seabed which is set to be released March 2013 through R&S Records.
6) PVNDV – Take Me
Wake up! You’re having a nightmare about Draculas and the soundtrack is this song! PVNDV have labelled this song’s genre as Witch. I didn’t know that was a thing but if any song fits that genre, this song is it. Muhaha…
7) Ta-ku’s Remix of Sango – Owe Me
A couple weeks ago, Sango remixed the 1999 Nas feat Ginuwine song, You Owe Me. Now, Ta-Ku remixed that remix (it’s super meta stuff) and he included everyone’s favorite pneumatic device, the air horn. I’m not mad at it and I hope you aren’t either. Back it up x 100!
8) Earl Sweatshirt – Chum
Earl Sweatshirt is a beast! I’ve been listening to Chum everyday since its release a couple weeks ago, which says something about me…that I’m “feeling hard as Vince Carter’s knee cartilage is”? Well, yeah, always! …but I also just really dig that piano beat and Earl’s story-telling lyrics.
9) Amtrac’s Remix of Viceroy feat. Ghost Beach – While Were In Love
I liked the original song by Viceroy featuring Ghost Beach when it was released last week but I LOVE Amtrac‘s remix of this song. Vicerory remixed Amtrac’s song, Those days, a couple weeks ago so now Amtrac is returning the favor; it’s electronic remix etiquette!
10) La Boulangerie 2 (S∆nto) - Love Cake
Love Cake is the standout track from the album La Boulangerie 2 by La Fine Equipe & Friends. The soul sample combined with beats by S∆nto makes me feel happy and what more could I ask for in a song?…An album title that isn’t French, you say? How RUDE!
